1) Missions Mobilization Treasure Trove

1) Missions Mobilization Treasure Trove

It’s a bit deceptive – because the page is only one “screen” long. https://home.snu.edu/~hculbert/ Exactly what are you visiting? Just some links and notes by Howard Culbertson, Emeritus Professor of Missions and World Evangelism at Southern Nazarene University. It’s just deceptive because he doesn’t want to overwhelm you. For example, if you want to be overwhelmed, just click to the site map https://home.snu.edu/~hculbert/contents.htm. (That should suitably overwhelm ANY of us.) It’s a treasure trove for mobilizers. Thank you Howard Culbertson for an incredible life still being lived out loud! When I grow up, I want to be like this guy. read more…

10) What Are You Trained to Do?

10) What Are You Trained to Do?

Musicians and athletes both speak of “muscle memory.” There’s some kind of neural processing that goes on at the cellular level — and it doesn’t even require the brain! (For more on this, read, for example, https://www.ck12.org/book/human-biology-nervous-system/section/5.1/.

So we were wondering… Have you (intentionally or unintentionally) trained yourself in any “muscle memory” throughout the past 12 months of lockdowns? For example, what if we could train our body for a 20-minute quiet time each morning? What if we could train ourselves in the art of being resilient? What if we trained ourselves to tolerate ambiguity — or feel comfortable with the confusion of new languages? What if gradually, we shaped the way our minds feel about going through an entire week without sharing the Gospel with a soul.

Would you write a couple of lines about the rhythms YOU’ve set up during Covid quarantine? Feel free to comment anonymously — but please DO be honest. Just click “Read more/Comment” and share some of the HELPFUL and surprising rhythms your “spiritual” muscles have embraced over the past year. read more…
